RPM Image Overlays

The overlay manager is used to configure the PDF overlays and image watermarks that can be added to PDF files or when printed via a Text Printer action. Overlays are also used by the Watermark PDF transform.

To work with overlays, choose Image Overlays from the Configure menu. RPM supports a wide variety of image formats or PDF files as overlays, though PDF overlays can only be used with PDF files. Once in the Overlays dialog, you can add, update, or remove overlays.
